I think this is a false assumption. When I started making my own recipes, they were extract based , but they were not attempts to replicate an AG brew or attempts to clone commercial brews.
I had to go through the same process as the OP when I switched to AG and convert all of my recipes.
There are a lot of extract brewers out there with a lot of recipes that they created.
